NEW DEAL SMALL BATCH
MALT WHISKEY SERIES

This Fall New Deal Distillery released a trio of 5-year malted whiskeys, staggering their debut by offering a new release in September, October, and November. Each small batch selection has explored a different combination of traditional and experimental grains, giving each whiskey in the trio a unique profile.

For fans who are interested in discussing all three malt whiskeys, please join us on Wednesday, November 18th at 6 pm for a virtual tasting led by our owner and distiller Tom Burkleaux. He’ll be sharing details about the whiskey-making process, as well as answering your questions, as we taste through the September, October, and November small-batch whiskey releases together. You’re invited to stay on the Zoom call after the tasting to enjoy an informal whiskey soda with the distiller. Space will be limited so secure your spot today!

RE-CRAFTING AN AMERICAN TRADITION

“American malt whiskey is a category largely ignored by the big Kentucky distilleries, it’s been the craft distillers who have explored the American expression of malt whiskey. We had fun experimenting with some uncommon mash bills and thought it would be fun to release these as a series. We like to put out something special around the holidays and this year definitely calls for more whiskey.”
